    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good starting point to get industry experience and have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects using different technologies and products
    opportunity to trial and error different areas and pick one you want to specialize

    Cons

    the culture is very competitive but not very supportive and collaborative. You have to make yourself highly visible to the senior executives in order get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect and fairness and be transparent.

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    good recognizable brand, structure, heaps of diversity in colleagues

    Cons

    long hours, mass sweat shop

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    people services management - focus on the skills, efforts and results of individuals instead of relying on who makes the most rah rah.
     the 360 reviews are useful but may meet with PC answers from eager young A types

    you need to know people up the ladder to support you for promotions, its not merit based, its all about whom you know in the organisation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TOuch base with people who work with you, they are just not resources.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depends on the project you are in. Bangalore location is preferable for starters to explore good opportunities. You always have your choice of what to do. Culture is good.

    Cons

    Would be great if onshore opportunities are given based on ability rather than work visa availability. Employee preferences(especiall work location) need to be respected rather than accepting managerial decision.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities, great people to work with, training is great if you get a chance to go, as well as if you get time for online training

    Cons

    They will sell you into a role regardless of your qualifications. You may be a business analyst and get sold into an IT/testing role just to boost chargeability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forcing people into roles, will make them leave if they can. Consider this when forcing people into roles
